Madhevere provides late boost for Zimbabwe

Posted on January 11, 2023 by Ken

Wessley Madhevere provided a late boost to ensure Zimbabwe got up to 79/5 in their nine overs in their T20 World Cup game against South Africa at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart on Monday.

The match was reduced to nine overs a side after steady rain delayed the start of play for more than two-and-a-half hours. Zimbabwe had already won the toss and elected to bat first.

Madhevere, who was dropped on 11 by Lungi Ngidi off Keshav Maharaj, was his team’s most effective batsman as he belted 35 not out off just 18 deliveries.

Zimbabwe had come out to bat perhaps a bit too frenetically and very quickly found themselves 19/4, as Wayne Parnell bowled well up front and Ngidi effected a double strike in the third over, removing Regis Chakabva (8) and Sikandar Raza (0).

There was also a run out amidst the chaotic start, David Miller scoring a fine direct hit from cover to remove the experienced Sean Williams (1).

Parnell was the pick of the bowlers, while Anrich Nortje (1/10 in 2 overs) bowled very well at the death. There was a little but of pain though for Kagiso Rabada and Ngidi, as they went for 20 runs in their two overs.

    Philemon 1:7 – “Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the saints.”

    “Every disciple of Jesus has a capacity for love. The most effective way to serve the Master is to share his love with others. Love can comfort, save the lost, and offer hope to those who need it. It can break down barriers, build bridges, establish relationships and heal wounds.” – A Shelter From The Storm, Solly Ozrovech

    If there’s a frustrating vacuum in your spiritual life and you fervently desire to serve the Lord but don’t know how you’re meant to do that, then start by loving others in his name.
